About The Band
The Dapper Gents originally formed in 2012 in the Old Port of Portland, Maine from high demand for Jacob McCurdy to take his solo act to the upstairs stage at Bull Feeney’s. Mick Ramos (guitar), Scott Michel (bass), Johnny Clay Shanks (vocals/guitar), and Eric P. Winter (drums) provided the fuel for The Gents to make their debut. Playing classics like “Where is My Mind” by the Pixies and “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers, they began to draw quite an audience.
Eventually, the other talents of some of the band’s members began to borrow them on a more full time basis. Danny Rand (cello) and Jacob McCurdy (vocals/guitar) are the core members of The Dapper Gents, a Portland-based cover band that thrives on fine whiskey and IPA’s. They put a new twist on pop/rock/folk songs from any generation such as Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” and Milo Greene’s “1957”.
